Summary
  • Weather Watch is an easily used program which may be useful for a science class or student project. It's written for keeping daily weather records and providing graphic summaries of them. Up to three different time and temperature data pairs can be recorded daily, and provision is made for recording precipitation and up to eight descriptive observations (i.e., fair + calm, overcast, etc.) Strengths are cited as: (1) structure, a data base manager with arithmetical functions; (2) versatility for various other science class applications; and (3) its discount price for quantity orders. The only cited weakness was the inability to save files on the "B:" drive, meaning that each student would require their own copy of the program. The overall rating is "recommended" for use by science teachers interested in local weather phenomena.
